Force Nexuses and Vergences

Reference Index

A Force nexus or vergence is a location or object where the Force is particularly strong. Such places frequently are the site of Jedi temples or places of worship which attract pilgrims from the large array of Force-based religions. Under certain circumstances, Force users can use a Force nexus’s power to augment their own.
